Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook
This will not be very easy if you are new to Linux. However, I will provide the instructions for preparing the live USB. I assume you are working on your Aspire with Linux Lite installed.
The same instructions apply for Windows, though will you need UNebootin for Windows. I advise you to carry out the task from a windows PC, as it will be much easier from there.
You will need:
A USB flash drive with 1GB space.
A high speed broad band connection.
Ubuntu live CD ISO file. Download it from here.
UNebootin. Download from here. (Download the version for Linux).
Note: If you already have the Ubuntu Live CD then it will save you the download. Make an ISO image of the CD and put it on the desktop.
Now you have to follow this procedure:
Run the UNebootin.
Connect your USB flash drive to your laptop. Take into account the drive letter.
UNebootin has a self explanatiory GUI. You have the choice to download the ISO from this program or to point to the ISO image you downloaded previously.
Choose your USB drive letter from the drop-down list within UNebootin.
Now it will copy the files to the flash drive.
Next you have to set the BIOS to boot from USB drives.
Insert the newly created flash drive in the port and boot from it. The Ubuntu installation should start.
Linux installation is just like that for Windows.

Well, if you want to keep both, you would have to do some partitioning and resizing, but if you want to simply replace it with Ubuntu, I would start with Unetbootin and Installation/FromUSBStick. You can find this info which is semy simplified here:
BUT, this one is probably much easier, and better because it is specifically for the Acer Aspire One! (A lot of Netbooks have customized installations around).
Try this one first:
Life long and prosper!

I don't think you will find a recovery CD but Linux is free to download is suggest using pen drive linux (link bellow) to get the OS you want and the tools you need to make your boot media
If you are looking for a simple install and a easy to use version of linux I suggest Ubuntu (link below) the website comes with simple steps to create a boot CD/USB
